Evan Wells, co-president at Naughty Dog, disclosed to Game Informer why live demonstrations aren’t always fun and games. In the days leading up to E3 2009, a pesky bug found in Uncharted 2 forced Naughty Dog and Sony to think fast for the big show.
yes the media would have blew this up if something went wrong during the greatest E3 demo ever made (IMO)
I was going to buy it anyway before I saw he demo because I love Uncharted 1, but that demo made me want it so much more. Hopefully there is a demo of Killzone 3. The trailer was pretty cool, but some pure uninterrupted gameplay footage is what I want to see.
An ugly bug shows itself in an early build of the game and nobody is willing to look past it? I fail to see how the game was really threatened. It would have been a good story, repeated by every gaming website, but people would get over it - at least I have to hope they would.
This is actually a cool story. They must've been so scared during the demo.
It's sad when the only game you can flaunt is Halo. hahaha! And mad luv to NaughtyDog! UC3 is going to be bonkers!
Yeah Halo is good let the video do the talking ;) ;) http://www.youtube.com/watc...

"Bungie did the same thing with the Halo 3 in game cameo in an older E3 and synced an extra console. But they were more afraid of RRODs…"
Greatest of this generation, I'd be inclined to agree. Greatest ever made; HIGHLY debatable.
debatable yes, but a contender no doubt!
good job naughty dog that was epic though.
a lot of companys would have recorded the sequence and switched to that if there was a problem props to nd
is one of my favourite games this i thank naught dog and im so happy they got all those goty awards in 2009 looking forward to uncharted 3 end statement ?
Atleast they had a back-up plan right? :D It's good how they knew about the bug but were still going ahead with the demo. Shows true dedication to a great game! If the bug had gone off twice though in the live demo and the producers one....I would of lol'd.
It's such a great single player with a underrated Multiplayer component.
they should have used this to stop Natal from going BAM!!!
thanks nd, you put alot of hard work into uncharted2 and it paid off, i love the game:)
Oh god, I would be spazzing like, "Please don't bug up! PLEAAAAAASE!". Lol.
I'm pretty sure Uncharted 2 would have lost some sales if their demo crashed at E3 but it would be a small margin. Anyways the disaster definitely isn't over, until the Multiplayer can stay consistent without every other update messing up the re-spawns or the gameplay THEN Uncharted 2 can go back to being an awesome game. I still play U2 but their recent update messed up the re-spawns again.
What I would do just to play with an uncharted 3 glitchy demo. I could careless. I would just be in awwww.
I really doubt it would of caused too much of a bloody nose, LittleBigPlanet suffered quite a few tech problems during it's early days and it was laughed off.
who cares really? it got game of the year
WOW... you wrote an article that rips off another article? This is in the current issue of Game Informer, which I just received in the mail today. This is what is wrong with game "journalism" today. Consistent ripping off of other "journalists"
The inFAMOUS 2 gameinformer right? what page?
Not sure which page, but it's in there...Somewhere it says something like narrowly avoided epic disaster, where they had a game off screen where they could switch to if need be. Jiggy is correct, it's in this month's issue of GI.
Oh god, that would've been worse than that crash that Microsoft had for Gears 2 at E3 that one time, only this would have been more noticeable! Or worse than that Assassin's Creed 1 demo that Ubi had at the MS conference an E3 earlier.
